Frequently Asked Questions:
How long should Overnight oats be soaked?
Overnight oats should soak for about 6-8 hours. You can eat it after 2 hours, but the oats won’t have enough time to fully break down.

Which oats are good for overnight oats?
Old-fashioned oats are best to use for overnight oats. Steel-cut oats will not break down as well and will leave you with tough, chewy oats, and quick oats will give you a soggy breakfast.
Can I add frozen fruit to overnight oats?
Yes, frozen fruit goes really well with overnight oats. Frozen berries will infuse more flavor throughout the oats better than fresh fruit.

Adding fresh fruit the night before will give the fruit a crisper bite than if you add it as you make the recipe and let it sit for the full five days.

In the Total Beginner’s Guide to Baking, I break down all the things that you should know to be a better baker.
After reading through this guide you will know how to accurately measure any ingredient, and how to measure honey without having it stick to the cup! (Soooo annoying.)
There’s also an article with tips on how to read through recipes. It sets you on the right foot before you even start baking anything.
I have a habit of baking AS I read through the recipe. So, I often miss a step, or screw up something that is explained in more detail lower on the page…. (will I ever learn?!!… Looking at my track record, no, probably not!)
But, you, my friend, won’t have to throw out so many ingredients because you have this article to help you through the recipe AND a worksheet to write down the important details before starting.
Anyways, this guide is 22 pages of helpful resources for the beginner AND intermediate baker. I am sure you will find it insanely useful on your baking journey.
